As Liverpool look set to sign the young English duo of Jordan Henderson and Phil Jones, attention may start to focus on another young duo, this time from Barcelona. Liverpool are reported to have made contact with Barcelona regarding the potential signing of Bojan and Jeffren Suarez.

Now these are two potential signings that excite me if they do materialize. Liverpool have been linked for a while now with Bojan as we seek another striker to provide cover and competition for Suarez and Torres. Bojan has not really gotten a look-in at Barcelona due to David Villa being their main striker. Bojan needs more games under his belt and he would certainly get more action at Liverpool than if he continues to sit on the Barcelona bench. Bojan himself has said that he wants to stay at Barcelona and fight for his place but it may be a fight he can not win.

With Liverpool set to miss out on Ashley Young as it looks like he will be joining Manchester United, the search continues for a new winger. Thus the name of Jeffren Suarez pops up. The 23 year old Barcelona winger is also not getting much game time at Barcelona and he is thinking of moving on so he can establish himself as a top European player. Jeffren could easily become a regular starter at Liverpool if he does join us as we need his pace and trickery.

Barcelona find themselves in a tricky situation now. They have a great side right now which can stay together for the next 2 or 3 seasons, what do they now do with the fringe players such as Bojan and Jeffren who can not break into the starting line-up but want to play regular football? Do they sell them or persuade them to hang around? I hope they sell them as we could so with these two players.
